How to Clean Car Windows with Newspaper
Clean your car windows with newspaper and vinegar. (sur la route image by valérie Beunardeau from

The windows on your car often require the most regular maintenance, as pollen, dirt and other debris accumulate quickly and can cloud your visibility while driving. This makes it important to clean the windows regularly and incorporate a maintenance routine that keeps the windows clear of all residue. Do not use your regular glass cleaner and paper towels, as this leaves behind film and lint particles. Instead, use an inexpensive household ingredient and a handful of newspaper.

  1. 1

    Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar.

  2. 2

    Spray the vinegar on one of your car windows and wipe off quickly with a handful of crumbled newspaper. Use only newspaper with black ink, as coloured ink often rubs off on the windows and leaves behind residue.

  3. 3

    Proceed to the next window and continue until all the windows are streak-free. Make sure you clean both the inside and the outside of the windows.

  4. 4

    Let the windows air-dry after cleaning.
